Broadway favorite and longtime Chicago veteran Charlotte d'Amboise will return to the production at the Ambassador Theatre on June 6. The two-time Tony nominee holds the record for having played Roxie Hart more than any other actress in the history of the production in more than 2,500 performances on Broadway and the road combined to date.

She received Tony Award nominations for her performances in Jerome Robbins' Broadway and the revival of A Chorus Line. She has also appeared on Broadway in Pippin, Sweet Charity, Contact, Company, Damn Yankees, Carrie, Song & Dance, and Cats.

Featuring classic tunes by John Kander and Fred Ebb, Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media, and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her crime into a barrage of sensational headlines. The revival is directed by Walter Bobbie.
